Labor unions are one of the reasons I had a comfortable childhood. My dad worked for Chrysler Corp. He had good wages, good insurance and good vacation time due to the efforts of the United Auto Workers union.
Of course, dad had a lot to do with it, too. He worked hard to provide for us.
Thank you, dad.
And thank you labor unions.
I'm working 12 hours myself today. Not because I have to. Because I like my job and I volunteered to. (Of course, I didn't volunteer to work for free - double time and a half - oh yeah!)
Hope everyone else is doing something they like to do today!
